St. Martin de Porres: Thinker, Doer, Lover

November 03, 2014 7:00 PM
Dominican Center Room 218

Adapting insights provided by St. Thomas Aquinas’ analysis of the contemplative and the active life and psychologist Henri Joly’s two classes of saints, Dr. Vost examines the life of the great Dominican St. Martin of Porres on his feast day, through the lenses of contemplative, apostolic, and charitable “spiritual styles,” with special attention to the lessons St. Martin can share to help us become better thinkers, doers, and lovers, spreading the gospel message to all with charity, justice, and mercy.
